Calhoun's ASP@81 program offers drop-in care for students in 4th through 8th grades.

The following drop-in options are available on an as-needed basis:

  • 4th-5th graders can drop in to Cub Club, 3-6pm.

Extended Day Care

Please note that ASP@81 classes begin at 3:30pm and end at 4:45pm (unless otherwise noted). Students must be picked up when class ends. If you require regular care after 4:45pm, please register for Extended Day. 

Late Pickup Fees

ASP@81 ends promptly at 6pm. There is no extended care available. If a child is picked up later than 6pm, the family will be charged an additional dollar for every minute past 6pm. Late fees will be reflected in your Enrollment Portal. Financial aid does not apply to these additional charges.

If lateness is habitual, ASP has the right to refuse service.
